Quality dairy unit


Over the past 30 years the owners have developed this 136ha (more or less) dairy farm into an environmentally sustainable unit.

The tidy dairy is a 22 ASHB with modern Waikato milking plant (2018). An in-shed feeding system allows higher feed utilisation with a time saving automatic teat sprayer also an excellent addition. Production of 99,000kg/MS was achieved from 270 cows in 2019/20 season over an effective platform area of 93ha. Dairy cows were wintered on farm, with some young stock grazed off. With an increased platform area of over 100ha, 310 cows are being milked in the current season.

Infrastructure includes an 8 bay gable shed next to the dairy with two lockable bays. The farm is subdivided into 39 paddocks with internal electric fences, boundary fences being mostly 8 wire post and batten.

The main home is four bedrooms and sits proudly overlooking the property, its modern kitchen and expansive outdoor living with established gardens are very appealing. The second dwelling is a tidy three bedroom cottage with a large three bay detached shed. A detached single accommodation is also near the dairy.

Quality access is evident throughout with two under passes and lanes allowing access to all areas of the property, the flat portion of the land out from the dairy is split, allowing easy vehicle access. An on farm sand quarry also provides excellent material for maintaining races. With a good mix of flat to rolling contour the farm lends itself towards future development which could include horticulture or cropping. Soils are Tirau ash and sandy loam which are free draining.

Water is sourced via two bores which provide excellent quality water to all paddocks, a mineral dispenser is also incorporated. Effluent is pumped from a double concrete sump to 20ha, a lined effluent storage pond is also a great asset.

Located 20 kilometres South of Cambridge down a quiet no exit road the property has views of Maungatautari mountain and Lake Karapiro. Primary schooling is nearby with secondary options in Cambridge.
